June 16 | The 3-Point Play
When ahead at the end of the game, know this…
The opposing team needs to do two things:
- score quick
- stop the clock
- jump for a block or
- lunge for a steal
And whatever you do… Don’t. Foul.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
To improve, compare little things:
- Marketing strategies
- Exercise technique
- Writing tactics
To be miserable, compare big things:
- Career path
- Net worth
Comparison is the thief of joy when applied broadly, but the teacher of skills when applied narrowly.
– James Clear

3-Point Play: On getting cut, good leadership, and being boring
No one gets cut from their team because they can’t make a step back or fade-away.
3-Point Play: On practice speed, the efforts of many, and habits
Practice at a speed that makes you uncomfortable so, in a game, you feel confident playing at a speed that makes your opponent uncomfortable.
3-Point Play: On balanced scoring, gardening, getting the crap done first
Do the things you like least first. When you have energy, it’s easier to get an unpleasant thing done. When you’re tired, it is nearly impossible. Whether it’s yard work or studying, get the crap over with soon. Save the best till last.
